Educational Administration Quarterly [Internet]. 2015;51 (5) :753-790. Purpose We examine how uncertainty, both about students and the context in which they are taught, remains a persistent condition of teachers’ work in high-poverty, urban schools. We describe six schools’ organizational responses to these uncertainties, analyze how these responses reflect more open- versus closed-system approaches, and examine how this orientation affects teachers’ work. Research Methods We draw on interviews with a diverse set of 95 teachers and administrators across a purposive sample of six high-poverty, urban schools in one district. Findings We find that students introduced considerable uncertainty into teachers’ work.

Conclusions Traditional public schools are open systems, and require systematic organizational responses to address the uncertainty introduced by their environments. Developing Great Teaching Report.

This report reviews the research and theory-based recommendations for education leaders to use in developing systems of teacher advancement that promote student learning and educational opportunity. The report provides vivid descriptions of teacher leadership roles and emphasizes the need to support effective teaching in all education contexts, as well as the highest-needs contexts, such as economically disadvantaged schools and correctional facilities.

Leaping the CPD hurdle

Great PD leads to great pedagogy. The impact of CPD and its role in leading staff and effective teams. What's going wrong? Surprising findings of CPD study. Purpose In 2005, a second phase of research, Creating Learning without Limits (CLwL) was set up to explore the process of whole-school development driven by the core idea of transformability: the conviction that all children (not just some children) can become more powerful, committed, successful learners given distinctive supportive conditions and generous opportunities for learning.

CLwL builds on the Learning without Limits study by exploring the wider opportunities for enhancing the learning capacity of every child that become possible when a whole staff group works together to create an environment free from the limiting effects of ability labels and practices. What happens when staff members jettison officially prescribed practices of predicting or pre-judging what any individual children might achieve? When they work, instead, to identify and lift limits on learning? The research team The research was funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Hertfordshire Local Authority. Research Bulletins.

What Twitter offers teachers

They use it to drive their professional development and to connect with other educators. However not everyone is so enthusiastic, others see Twitter as a tedious waste of time and are not tempted to give it a go. Of course many teachers may also describe face to face professional development sessions as a waste of time. In order to convince teachers of the possible benefits of using a new technology, such as Twitter, we decided to look for evidence of its qualities. What in particular, does Twitter offer educators? We identified 30 leading educators (with an interest in educational technology) who are currently using Twitter and analysed samples of their tweets in order to determine their purpose and the possible benefits of the tweets to their followers. We also examined a sample of tweets from the twitter streams of two popular educational hashtags: #edchat and #edtech, in order to determine what ‘followers’ may gain. What types of professional development do teachers really want?

We asked 1,000 teachers what professional development activities they would prioritise if they were in control of their own CPD.

What types of professional development do teachers really want?

They gave us some interesting insight. Teachers really value collaborative and personalised classroom-based CPD. In fact, they find these activities even more useful than being sent off site to courses or receiving one off InSET days. "I would prioritise a system that staff trusted to be fair, supportive and provide real and constructive feedback to help improve teaching practice. " Teachers also expressed a lot of interest in experimenting with different teaching practices. "The whole reason for CPD is to develop the staff who will then bring new and fresh ideas to their teaching to be then able to get the outstanding lessons that people want.I would prioritise more in house training to provide ideas about different teaching styles and activities.
